This evergreen crochet blanket is the perfect addition to your holiday decor. The color is beautiful and the textured crochet stitch used to whip this up makes it extra comfy.
Crochet Waffle Stitch Blanket
I purchased two of the green skeins and immediately knew I wanted to make a waffle stitch blanket.
This isn’t the first waffle stitch blanket pattern you’ll see here on I Can Crochet That. I also have one using a cotton blend yarn.
It’s the perfect throw for a little bit cooler temps. I designed it for my daughter’s dorm room for a blanket she could keep at the end of her twin bed. It’s lightweight and it was great for spring.
While it was fun making the lightweight one, the waffle stitch combined with Lion Brand’s Pound of Love yarn created a textured blanket that is my absolute favorite. There is something so soothing about whipping up a project using the waffle stitch.
Crochet Waffle Stitch How-To
Once you learn the crochet waffle stitch, it’s incredibly easy to do. This is a project you can definitely work on while binge-watching your favorite show.
You just need to know how to do a double crochet and a front post double crochet.
Here’s my tutorial showing you how to do the waffle stitch.
The Color + The Yarn
As I mentioned above, I used Lion Brand’s Hunter Green Pound of Love yarn.
It took two skeins to make this blanket and the end result is a squishy, super cuddly blanket.
